I thought my family would gobble this up, but I got no rave reviews. It seemed bland to me. I porbably won't make it again.

I used O’Brien frozen potatoes. Everyone loved this! A definite “keeper”!

Everyone seemed to like this dish except me. I thought it lacked seasoning.

This is a good casserole for a crowd for brunch. Easy to make and tasty. It did take me about an hour for it to be completely cooked.

This is a great breakfast to make ahead of time for kids going to school. It could use a little kick, but I have one kid that won't eat spicy. You could always add some salsa while eating.

I made this casserole tonight for dinner. My husband and I thought it lacked something. It is very bland. Also the cooking time is off. It took 65 min in my new oven. Not sure I would ever make this again.

I made this for a brunch at church. I thought it was great as it is. My husband would prefer less potatoes and more ham. I will try with seasoned sausage next time.

Best breakfast casserole that I have ever made. I have even made it a day or so before and still turns out. I prefer bacon over the ham but everyone I have served, loves it!
